Just a little moan

I have been feeling so down again so I thought that if I wrote about it on my blog it would get it out of my system. I just seem to getting one thing after another; colds, sore throats, aching and generally feeling run down but it seems to have been going on for so long now, in fact way before Christmas. I just want to wake up feeling full of energy with no coughs and sniffles. I am due back at the doctors on Tuesday so I shall ask her if she can do anything to help as I'm starting to feel that my tablets aren't working any more

I have done a bit of stitching and knitting but nothing to show at the moment but I'm hoping to be able to post something soon if I can get it finished. I had so many ideas of what I wanted to do this year but another month is nearly over and I've hardly achieved anything.

I am looking forward to going to Chester either this or next weekend to spend some time with Sharon, Carl and Joshua. Sharon says that Josh is trying so hard to walk on his own and I don't want to miss a minute.

Sorry for the moan, just needed to let it out to someone.

love and hugs,

My PIF from Chris and my PIF

Last weekend I received my PIF from Chris which was a lovely surprise as I'd forgotten all about it. She made me a beautiful scissor case, complete with scissors and a gorgeous handmade beaded fob complete with a pretty handmade card. Chris made seven of these fobs and scissor cases for her PIFs so she's been a very busy lady.

So now it's my turn to offer a PIF to anyone who would like me to stitch a gift for them in the next twelve months. Once I've stitched something for you then it is your turn to make the offer to stitch for three people. It's a lovely way to make new blogging friends.

Anyone who would like a PIF from me would you please leave a comment on this post and if I have more than three takers I will draw three names on Sunday February 28th.

A new month

I am so glad that February is here as January wasn't the best of months for me and ended last week with my youngest daughter Rachel being admitted to hospital with chest pains. Thankfully she is out now though she has to take a strong course of antibiotics and as she is three months pregnant it was a very worrying time for her with all the drugs that she was given when she was first admitted.

We've looked after her daughter Lily for most of the weekend and it's been lovely to hear her shout my name when she wakes up in the morning and even her singing away at 4.30 one morning was a joy. I can't believe that she will be two years old on Sunday, it doesn't seem five minutes since she was born.

I thought that it was about time that I posted a photo of my Travelling Stitcher SAL as I think this is the last week and I'm nowhere near finished yet.

This is what I had done by the end of the second week but then I couldn't find the cable to attach to the camera to download the photo. I have done a little more since then but not a lot so I must try this week and stitch a bit more.

I hope that wherever you are that the weather is better than it is here, very wet and windy, just the sort of day to sit and stitch if only I could get off here!!
